Tabi-Ji did not disappoint. We were celebrating Family and we gathered at the Teppan Bar. Chef Joe was handling the tools of the trade like a true master. I slightly went off menu asking for & ordering the Salmon with a blackened spicey twist. Chef Joe came back with a crispy spicey Salmon filet on the outside, but with a most center that was bursting with flavor, even the salmon skin crispy and full of flavor. The rest of the family enjoyed their meal, each other, and the staff's attentiveness. Thank you Tabi-Ji Team (Gabriel, Rifaldi & Chef Joe) for a wonderful evening

We have been here twice at their regular table service. The tempura is delicious. I have had their chicken/tempura combo and the steak/tempura combo. Both times delicious with soup and salad. One day we will reserve teppanyaki seating and try that out.

Our Favorite new Teppanyaki place! When Shiki closed we were bummed it was our place for 40 years and to find out Tabiji has been around for 5 years and it’s owned by the original owner of Shiki. Great food and great service!

Family visiting here to vacation at Disney. Grandson and spouse picked this place to try while we were here. Enjoyed our visit to the counters at Tabi-Ji. Staff qwas friendly, energetic and did their best to satisfy our needs. Men's bathroom was below standard. They need to modernize the bathrooms and bring them to the same standard as the dining experience. Otherwise a very good appealing experience and meal.

Tabi Ji is a favorite go to spot for my family and I. The staff is friendly, the service great, the food excellent, and the value on point. Try the Teppanyaki bar with 8 or more.

Picked up our dauggter from work at Disneyland on Valentine's Day. Found a last minute restaurant on open Table,at this Friendly Neighborhood take on Benihana and Shogun. All the fun of Teppanyaki without the pretense. Bill (the owner) is one cool cat and was everywhere making sure all went well. We will be back ☺

Tabi-Ji would not honor my OpenTable reservation for their "counter service" teppan table. They told me they were over-booked. Very disappointing experience.

Just about the worse Teppan house we’ve been to. We were hoping this is our next go to Teppan house but their food quality & service was far worse than what we’ve had in mind. Definitely will not be returning.

Our steaks & shrimp were over cooked, our 3 orders of fried rice were not not even mixed well, most of our rice was still white with no taste. Other patrons at our table refuses to take the overcooked steak requesting the chef to bring out another steak of which in hine sight we should have done the same. When that was brought to the attention of the manager of our overcooked steaks he was apparently not very apologetic at all & never once apologized. He never even bothered coming back until he gave us the bill stating that he took $6 off of our total bill of $184+. The chef had to do a double take looking for eggshells in the scrambled eggs b4 mixing it to the fried rice. Our hot teas & soft drinks were not refilled unless we ask.
